Mike is a school board member who has two school-aged children and knows how critical allowing school choice is for all Virginians. With lower school standards and political agendas in the classroom students’ quality of education has paid a heavy price; their mental health, social development, and academic progress have suffered tremendously.  Moreover, working parents have had to choose between putting dinner on the table or helping supplement their children’s educational needs.  In Richmond, Mike will ensure all Virginia schools remain safely open, expand access to more school choice, and increase funding for trade and vocational training.
